Ambient lighting is an important factor in making a space usable.
Ambient lighting is an important factor in making a space usable. It generally comes from ceiling fixtures, but it can come from recessed lights or other speciality fixtures like flush mounts and track systems. In order to get the most out of your recessed lighting, it’s important to focus on where you stand or will be standing when cooking and doing other tasks in the kitchen. This allows for consistent light coverage from above so that there are no shadows cast by pots hanging up overhead or cabinets with lights underneath them.
Recessed lights will give your kitchen the perfect ambience if you have a galley-style or island. With evenly spaced recessed light, it is easy to create walkways for people walking from countertop to stovetop and back again. If your space doesn’t allow these types of lighting options, try using something like a “grid pattern” so that there is even illumination across the area. Do not fret if recessed lighting is out of the question. Well-powered flush mounts are equally effective and provide even light throughout your space.
Create ambient light by using a wide-beam spread of the lights. That way, you won’t have to worry about glare from spotlighting and it will look more like walking in an organic space instead of being inside an art gallery.
